I am a Certified Professional Trainer through Absolute Dogs, Certified Canine Fitness Trainer (CCFT), FitPAWS Master Trainer, Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CDTI), Canine Conditioning Coach, and an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.
I believe you need to set your dog and yourself up for success by teaching FOR the situation, not IN the situation in order to get Real Life Results. Whenever you work with your dog using games instead of fear and intimidation you build a stronger bond with your canine companion. I teach group classes in Rally-O For Fun, Game Night With Our Dogs as well as in home private sessions for behavior and fitness.
Rally-O For Fun Class
RALLY-O IS A fun and exciting team sport for dogs and their handlers!
Dog and Handler teams navigate a course with numbered signs indicating different exercises to perform.
Handlers are permitted to talk, praise & encourage their dogs.
This is a great sport as it builds the bond between you and your dog, gives your dog mental stimulation and prepares for the sport of Rally in the real world, obedience competition or is just something FUN TO DO WITH YOUR DOG!
6-week classes are held on Friday at 4:30AM and Sunday at 9:30PM in Westminster, CO.
Game Night With Our Dogs Class
Do you find that doing ‘Basic Manners’ with your dog isn’t as fun as you’d like it to be? Is walking in a circle not your idea of a good time? Do you dream of a day where you and your dog have off leash freedom with a reliable recall?
Join us for Game Night and learn how interactive games may help to reshape your dog’s brain so that they begin to make good choices for themselves while you get to have fun with your dog.
This fun, interactive class will cover topics such as:
Can a bed or crate be a magical boundary for your dog? Yes! We’ll show you how!
Trouble with barking at passersby or other dogs? We’ll show you how you can be cooler than anything else in your dog’s world. Yes, there is a game for that!
6-week classes are held on Friday at 6PM in Westminster, CO.
I am passionate about helping dogs keep their minds and bodies strong, whether your dog is a canine athlete, service dog, working dog, weekend warrior, couch potato, puppy, adult or senior they all deserve fitness to keep their bodies toned and working properly to prevent injuries. I can come to your home within my service area or rent an indoor facility in Westminster for 1-6 dog handler teams.
Fitness exercise programs can help your dog live the best life from puppyhood through their senior years. Group classes and private sessions are available.
Chester the Wonder Pup
A rescue from Boulder Humane Society, has been my biggest inspiration to become a full-time, gentle-method dog trainer. I graduated from Rocky Mountain Regional Dog Trainer Academy in December 2012.
Chester has titled in; CGC, CGCA, CGCU, Novice Rally Title and Trick Dog Titles all the way from Novice to Advanced!
Chester became my Service dog in 2014 by completing extensive training with Domino Service Dogs where I was one of their lead trainers for 4+ years.
Therapy and Service Dog Training
With 4+ years and multiple hours of working with Service Dogs in Training and their Handlers I have the tools for a great Therapy and Service Dog Instructor.
Whether you want your dog to learn what you want instead of what you don’t want through game-based training, tricks, canine conditioning or you’re interested in having your dog become an AKC Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog or Service Dog I am confident I have the tools to help you have the dog you desire.
I am an AKC Canine Good Citizen Instructor and evaluator, a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and a Member of the Pet Professional Guild.
I continue to attend workshops and seminars to make sure I am always up to date on all of the new and innovative ways to have fun with dogs and their Humans ~ Always learning more!
